Hello! We are Courtney & Walter Blekicki. We are just your normal everyday couple that both happen to love being behind our cameras. And even luckier that we were able to turn that love into our career. Photography as a whole is about capturing light, trapping those fleeting moments in amber to last for all time and we are those entrusted with that honor. We spend our day capturing every moment, unforgetable or momentary, that ray of sunlight that grazes the edge of your veil, a father's tear filled eyes at first sight of his daughter becoming a bride. The golden afternoon sun dancing through the field as you walk hand in hand as Mr & Mrs. These are the moments, the memories that excite us to capture, have us to capture yours.
The Wedding Industry
Our passion and love for photo and film is what brought us each to weddings. Working together to create unique and lasting memories on these milestones in your lives, is what continues to fuel our love for it. For us, its about more than just taking stunning photos & video, it's about telling the authetic love stories of you, the people, in front of our cameras and helping make all your dreams come true.
The Wedding Memories
Our best wedding memory might be a bit selfish or cliché, but it was the day we met. We met while working a wedding almost 13 years ago. That day we began a friendship that became love than turned into each others worlds. Weddings are something so special to us because it started our love story and in turn we now want to capture and help bring your love stories to life.
My fiancé and I met Courtney of Solaris at our engagement shoot after she and her husband came highly recommended by a friend. We felt like she really got our vibe during the shoot and made us feel so comfortable. We cannot wait until our wedding day and to have the Solaris duo capture our special day!
Courtney and Walter were nothing short of perfection! They knew exactly what pictures to get and their timing was perfect throughout our entire day! You can tell they have been doing this for a long time. We got our pictures back really quickly and they were so amazing! We couldn’t recommend them enough!
Let me just start by saying what a pleasure it was working with Courtney. She personally took my wedding photos and my best friend’s. My photos are amazing. She captured everything I wanted, any request I had she made sure it was captured at the perfect moment. It’s so nice to know I have such beautiful photography to look back on when I think about the best day of my life. Literally felt like I had another family member just taking our photos. Nothing was rushed, everything was so relaxed and perfect and not a single shot was missed. Every candid photo was also amazing. Thank you so much for making my memories so special. I cannot wait to use Solaris Photo & Film again for all my special events in my life.
I cannot say enough about Courtney who shot our engagement photos. First off, she made us feel so comfortable, had us laughing the entire shoot and was so personable. Then, we got our photos back and we are BLOWN AWAY! We have gotten so many compliments and every shot is perfect! Best wedding planning decision we made was using Solaris Photo & Film and it's made us even more excited for the wedding!
Courtney shot our engagement shoot and let me tell you, what an amazing experience! My fiancé and I were a little nervous and I was definitely feeling self-conscious, but Courtney’s calm demeanor and professionalism put us right at ease. She helped guide us with poses and soon enough we were all laughing and having a great time. She delivered beautiful, edited pictures quickly and answers any questions we had. Would ten times over use her services again!
I cannot say enough amazing things about Courtney! She made our engagement shoot so fun and comfortable, was willing to listen to any shots I had wanted or envisioned and made them come to life even better than I imagined. She captured our love for one another so beautifully. I cannot thank her enough for providing us with stunning images as well as her warm and vibrant personality, which helped us get comfortable in front of the camera and allowed us to be goofy and loved up. Thank you so much Courtney. The hardest decision by far is picking our save the date!!
Amazing! We are so pleased with the pictures!!! They answered all my questions and were great during the wedding day. I’m in love with all these memories. Thanks for capturing them.
We hired Solaris Photo & Film after seeing photos and videos from a friend’s wedding. Although our wedding is a year away, we had the chance to meet Courtney during our engagement photoshoot this past summer. Courtney drove all the way to central Jersey and was so amazing and fun to work with. She took our personalities into consideration and was super open to our ideas. Since then, she’s been quick to answer any questions we’ve had or even edit our engagement photos. My fiancé and I can’t stop staring at them and using a bunch for our website and save the dates. We are so excited for our wedding day!
I cannot express how much I LOVED Solaris for our wedding! Needless to say, my photographer was the best AND my photos are jaw dropping. Day-of was chaotic, as any wedding, and I can usually get caught up in the stress but Courtney didn’t even let me think about that and she handled my crazy family with ease! Completely professional but also kept it so light and casual. I felt like I’ve known Courtney (AND AMANDA) forever when in reality that was our first time meeting. And let’s talk about the photos... A-MAZ-ING!! I swear I look at them all the time. Price was beyond fair and way beyond worth it. 10000/10 recommend!
Courtney is the photographer you need at your events! She shot our wedding, and our photos came out AMAZING! She wasn't just our photographer, but she kept the whole day flowing, and was just fun to be around! She was our hype woman all day! Can't wait to work with her again for our next event!
We had the pleasure of having Solaris Photo & Film shoot our simply beautiful backyard wedding. So much of the day was captured, so many special details filmed; so many images to choose. From the sparkle of the rings, to the twinkle of the last dance, it was magical, and every second is a memory we can live over and over again because it was all caught through their camera's eye. Professional, personal, and perfect. Will be sure to engage them again for any future events.
